If you love a colourful playground, you’ll love Packer Park. The playground is an enormous maze of conjoined play equipment, a vast expanse of colourful ramps joined by walkways, chain bridges and various ladders. Scattered amongst the structure are climbing mats, fireman’s pole, cubbies, tunnels, mirrors, variety of games, tunnel slide, steps, scrambling walls, disks on hanging poles and a curved slide. Four springers, plenty of colourful tables and mushroom seats, family size see-saw, swings and a huge rope structure for the kids to climb. There is even a large wooden snake which makes sounds as you wall along it.


The park features BBQs, tables under shelter, water tap, rubbish bins and toilets. There is also a basketball ring, tennis wall and off leash dog areas. The wetland is a popular spot to admire the bird life and look for frogs although it was dry on our visit, while the velodrome provides plenty of fun and exercise for the cycling enthusiast.
